Surgeon Fish

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Surgeon-fish is a popular name for any species of the genus Acanthurus, from the sharp, erectile, lancet-shaped spine with which each side of the tail is armed. In the early stages of their growth these fish are so different from the fully-developed individuals, that for some time the young fish were placed in a separate genus."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
